How to Solve Food Waste AD Pipe Blockage Problems

At the RWM Exhibition at the NEC Birmingham, UK, last week, while I was talking to Anaerobic Digestion service providers, a recurring topic which came up was the significant number of UK biogas plants which have recently been afflicted by pipe blockages. These were in many cases proving to result in long plant outages, and […]

How to Eliminate CO2 from Biogas?

Biogas can be upgraded to pipeline natural gas quality for use as a renewable natural gas, but as part of the upgrading process it will be necessary to remove the carbon dioxide (CO2) from the biogas. This upgraded gas may also be used for residential heating and as vehicle fuel, so there are many good […]

How Anaerobic Digestion Processes Are Applied To Municipal Solid Waste For Biogas And Waste Diversion

Increasingly Anaerobic Digestion Processes are being Applied To Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) for the production of biogas as a renewable energy source, and also for Waste Diversion. Waste Diversion in this context means the diversion of waste (especially organic waste) away form landfill. Anaerobic digestion (AD) of MSW is often part of an MBT Plant […]

Anaerobic Digestion of Dairy Manure in the US

In order to pick up the skills needed to take the plunge and invest in anaerobic digestion technology, on any farm to be straight out of college is not essential, but being young and enthusiastic clearly helps, as in our first news item, which follows: Armed with a master’s degree in animal science, Vanderkooi opened […]

Solid and Liquid Digestate from Anaerobic Digestion – Uses and Odor Prevention

Introduction Household waste is inherently putrescible (compostible), and provides a natural material for decomposition by methane bacteria. It will ferment naturally, in a landfill, which even when lined and capped is at comparatively little cost. But, landfills do bring with them considerable environmental and safety hazards. They require extensive gas abstraction and leachate control systems […]

Pipeline Quality Gas from Anaerobic Digestion Goes Ahead in Québec

The acceptance of biogas upgrading to natural gas pipeline quality is rising, although in many locations the natural gas network owners remain sceptical about the consistency of the gas quality acheivable from current upgrading technology. As the article excerpt below shows, Québec’s municipal wastewater sludge Anaerobic Digestion Plant will be another producer of pipeline quality […]
